Just to find a quick solution - what is the best way to launch 18.2 sqldeveloper again so that it opens the dialog which asks the path to jdk ?
Can't recall in which mysterious win-directory the config file was where I can fiddle with the java-home stuff.

I got my subversion connections back by downgrading the JDK as follows:
1st downloaded jdk from here: https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html
2nd looked hard where the configuration files are for sqldeveloper
For casual sql writer it is not straightforward to drill down to C:\Users\mywinuserx\AppData\Roaming\sqldeveloper\18.2.0
3rd altered the path to java - I remember that the sqldeveloper's new versions typicall ask where it is, but I can't say where it stores that informatiion
and find a product.conf file from there where the path to jdk can be altered e.g. like this:
# SetJavaHome /path/jdk SetJavaHome C:\opt\Java\jdk1.8.0_181
4th and llaunched 18.2 sqldeveloper and my subversions returned
lets see if everything now works as it used to
During install of the java, noticed that it will have discontinued support for corp. users, so I assume that sqldeveloper will be in sync with java later on.
Btw. it woudl be cool to have the same kind of versioning and releasing for java as we have now for sqldeveloper, apex and ords. Simplicity to filenames and so on
